    Default Maytag washer

    Maytag washer
    Model LAT9206BAE

    How hard shuld this machine be to turn by the tranny by hand? Not by the pulley but by the transmission itself.

    Was giving trouble with the spin cycle. I think it was tripping the overload on the motor and kicking off sometimes. When it did this, I it wopuld take a few minutes for it to do anything again. I assume it was resetting the overload.
    The drive belt has a little shine on the sides. I changed the belt. It calls for belt pn 211125. The belt I put on it is pn 2-11125-4e 1-c. Must be different belts. It does not want to work with the latter. I put the old one back on it.
    I removed the motor and put a little white lithium grease on the slides. Has a little squeak when it starts the spin cycle but it did spin the last time it was checked yesterday with 5 pairs of jeans in it.
    I also changed the pump for good measure eVen though the one on it seemed okay. It did have just a little play in it. I thought maybe the pump bearing might be getting hot and getting tight.
    Speaking of it being hard to turn by hand, I assume the brake is engaged, but it does not disengage until it spins, right?

    AS usual, I am hoping it is not the transmission and or brake assembly.

    Should turn fairly easy.....unless something is jammed between the tanks, under the tank cover or if the tub bearing is seizing.

    Should be the same belt. Shinny belt will slip more than a newer one will.

    I suspect there is something between the tub and basket or the bearing is seizing. Really need to fond my spanner adaptor or order another. Have two f these old washers. May be more simple to just swap transmissions motor, etc..
    Common sense tells me to scrap both!

    You never want to scrap a dependable care style washer!!
    They are tanks and built to last 30 years.
    Last resort maybe, but we try to keep these going as they are tough as nails.

    "They are tanks and built to last 30 years"

    Actually, I have two of the REALLY old ones with the black faced control panel. I don't doubt they have been around about 30 years. One had a grease leak so I took the siphon break of it to put on the other. Haven't tried it yet to see if that break leaks when draining. My first run in with a siphon break like this.
    I took the pump off and it fit the one in this post!
    Anyway, I agree Maytag used to make very durable machines. Not so sure about some of the newer ones yet.
    I did patch a hole in one of the black faced one at the bottom corner of the tank I was telling asking you about.

    Back to the one in this post. The transmission seems very hard to turn by hand. The older ones do not.

    I should add, the complain on this washer was sometimes the previous owner had to spin the clothes twice. It was sitting on they had it sitting on the back porch. I don't know if they had just moved it out to make room for the one I sold them or if it had been there a while. Looked as though it had been there a while.
    Maybe being partial exposed to the weather (not rain) made the bearing a little stiff?
    I was working with a long extention cord to start with. I t was I had on hand at the time. Used a shorter one and it seemed to do better. I have a heavier one that I should have been usuiong to start with if I was going to use one at all, but I have never had a problem with the longer lighter one before this when running one outside.

    Interesting note on the older Maytags. A friend of mine is wanting the older black faced set. I told him I have a lot newer set. HIs response was No! No! No, I want the older ones. He is also keeping the old set he has as extras.
    I'm kinda thinking yes, these were designed to last "30 years" but they are around that age now.

    Is the tub bearing turning with the tranny.....some will seize onto the tranny and you are turning the bearing and rubber outer part which makes it tougher to turn by hand than normal.
    Any leaking or black stuff coming out where the tranny goes through the bearing?

    That is probably the least changed item on the old dependable care washers was something with the brake.
    They rarely ever broke.

    When I rub up close with my finger yes.

    I meant to say a guy changed the washer under the spring that works the brake and transmission.
    I will say when it works, it seems to work very well like you expect some of the Maytags to work with no strange noises.
